Advanced Chemical Engineering

This course covers a vast subject extending far beyond its traditional roots in oil and gas processing; as well as dealing with chemical reactors, distillation and the numerous processes that take place in a chemical or petrochemical plant, there is an increasing need for chemical engineers able to design and develop formulated products and to have knowledge of biotechnology and environmental issues; the course is designed to equip students with this knowledge.
